BLT Salad

I've rarely made salad from scratch, but after making the BLT salad for my birthday party last Friday I realized that it is not such a bad idea! Prepackaged salads are way to expensive and cost much more than it's worth. You can get a head of romaine lettuce and red leaf lettuce for a much cheaper price and it could probably make 3 times as much as your packaged salad.
Get the freshest ingredients you can find, because that will result in the crunchiest and tastiest salad :)

BLT Salad
yields 1 large salad bowl (serves ~15)
  • 1 head romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 head red leaf lettuce
  • 4 roma tomatoes, cut into chunks
  • 1/3 white onion, diced
  • 5 strips of lean bacon
  • crumbled feta cheese
  • optional: 1 sliced cucumber or avocado
BLT Ranch Dressing
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • garlic powder
  • dill weed
  • parsley
Just whisk the dressing ingredients together, chill and drizzle over the salad! If you've had it last Friday you know it's delicious ;)
